'No pressure on Modi': Imran Khan admits Pak has failed over Kashmir
NEW YORK: Admitting that Pakistan has failed in its attempts to internationalise the Kashmir issue, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said that he is "disappointed with the international community" over the issue.
Pakistan has been repeatedly snubbed by the international community on several platforms after it cried foul over India's decision to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, with many countries backing New Delhi on the matter.
"(I am) Disappointed by the international community...There's no pressure yet on Modi," Imran Khan said, adding, "We'll keep putting the pressure."
Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Pakistan's envoy to the UN Maleeha Lodhi were also present at the press conference where Imran Khan spoke.
Both PM Modi and Imran Khan are currently in New York for the UN General Assembly. The two Prime Ministers have also held separate bilateral meetings with US President Donald Trump, who
renewed his offer to mediate between the two countries while underscoring that he'll only do so only if asked by both countries.
Imran Khan also acknowledged India's economic stature and global prominence while theorising why Pakistan's narrative on Kashmir is being overlooked. "The reason is that people look upon India as a market of 1.2 billion people," he claimed.
